As I have collected my set of bars I have a few sets which are a bit unusual. One I posted part of with a question re a badge attached to the set so I attach that set in its full glory.
I think the initials on the attached badge must be E(the church name) Wesleyan Methodist Junior Foreign Missionary Association. The Brigade Captain is I assume the Girl’s Life or Boys Brigade. Holder of the shield – best collector that year?
If anyone knows anything about this set I would love to hear from you.
The other two sets are a gold coloured set and a silver coloured.
Following my post on the Bolton competition I wonder if this was a similar idea later on?
My set from Stanley Sowton had one silver coloured medal and a year bar for 1943. The second set is a medal and bars from 1944 – 1948.
The “gold” medal has the name Donald F Kingswood and the year 1925 engraved on the back. It has two gold coloured bars for 1926 and 1928 which is in itself a little odd unless he kept his bronze and gold bars on different medal ribbons before 1932?
If anyone knows anything about why the silver and gold versions were produced or has other years in different coloured metal I would be delighted if you could post a picture on the site so that we can either solve or add to the mystery.
